Domaine Fichet Bourgogne Pinot Noir
Domaine Fichet Bourgogne Pinot Noir is light to medium bodied with red cherries and strawberries with a slight savoury aspect. Very good starting point for those unfamiliar with Burgundy or for those who know Burgundy and enjoy decent wine at a decent price.
Food Match: A beautifully fresh, light red which works well with game terrine or with pasta dishes.
Run by brothers, Pierre-Yves and Olivier, Domaine Fichet has raised the quality level of their wines in recent years by investing in a new modern winery.
The terroir here is unique, a high content of white limestone in the chalk and clay. The microclimate brings extra humidity and morning fog. Now with a new winery and a general willingness to modernise their approach, the brothers’ wines have continued to improve year after year. The Mâcon-Villages has a perfect balance of concentration, acidity and minerality and the Bourgougne Pinot Noir is beautifully fresh and light.
The terroir here is unique, a high content of white limestone in the chalk and clay. The microclimate brings extra humidity and morning fog. Francis Fichet was one of the first to plant Pinot Noir in the highly Chardonnay dominant region. His original plantings are now over 30 years old and are blended with Pinot that Pierre-Yves planted in 1994. The vines are trained using the single guyot system. The grapes from the older vines are hand picked and the younger vines machine harvested.
The grapes are 100% destemmed on arrival at the winery, there is then a period of cold maceration for 2-4 days at 12°C. The alcoholic fermentation is at 27°C with daily delestage for the first few days then pump over towards the end.
Time: 15 months
% wine oaked: 20
